Readers.com is pleased to offer international shipping! Estimated delivery times and costs depend on shipping method selected. Please note that delivery times are not guaranteed. The international shipping options we offer include:
- Priority Mail Express International
Packages shipped using USPS Priority Mail Express International usually arrive within 3-10 business days and are insured against loss or damage at no additional cost. Priority Mail Express International rates start at $27.71 and are non-refundable. Please note that a signature is required upon delivery.
- Priority Mail International
USPS Priority Mail International usually arrives within 8-15 business days, and rates begin at $6.95. Items shipped via this method are not insured against loss or damage, but can be tracked all the way to delivery at your door.
- First-Class Mail International
Packages shipped using USPS First-Class Mail International usually arrive within 12-25 business days, and rates start at $3.95. Orders over $50 sent to Canada and Australia qualify to receive free First-Class Mail International shipping. Please note that shipping tracking is not available with First-Class Mail International, and your package will not be scanned once it leaves the United States. Items shipped via this method are not insured and will not be replaced if lost, stolen, or damaged. Please choose USPS Priority Mail Express International if you need to track your package from our door to yours.
While most international packages are delivered within 14 days, in rare instances, delays of up to 6 weeks have been experienced once the package has left the United States. All customs fees and duties are the responsibility of the customer. You may be subject to import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches your country. Readers.com does not have control over delays through customs, customs duties, or import fees and is unable to predict their cost. Customs policies vary from country to country. You should contact your local customs office for further information. To provide safety and security for all online shoppers, international customers may be asked to fax a copy of their photo identification and both sides of their credit card before their order is processed.
Here at Readers.com, we care about the security of our customers financial information. In an effort to limit fraudulent transactions, all international orders, regardless of payment method, will be screened through our order verification process. Doing this allows us to continue to provide the low-cost, excellent service our customers expect. As part of this process, additional time may be needed to ship certain international and domestic orders, and additional verification information might be requested from the customer before orders can leave our warehouse. We appreciate your cooperation as we strive for customer happiness all over the world.
We love shipping to our military friends! Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee delivery time to military addresses. It takes 1-3 days for Priority Mail to arrive at the primary military post office, and 2-9 days for First-Class Mail. From there, the package is under the control of the military mail system. Your order should arrive in about the same amount of time as other packages from the U.S. (in most cases, 7-14 days). The actual transit time depends on where you are stationed. If you have any problems entering your APO/FPO address information, please contact Customer Service by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will happily answer within 24 hours.
Packages shipped within the United States are shipped with a delivery confirmation number. This means your tracking information will not be available until your order has been delivered. It is not uncommon for packages to show only confirmation of delivery, and not an origin scan. Please be aware that the USPS provides only a delivery confirmation service for most destinations, not a tracking service. USPS delivery confirmation services are designed to be a low-cost alternative to full tracking and primarily provide delivery information. Confirmation of delivery or attempted delivery is provided. Information is generally available on the evening of the date of delivery or attempted delivery.
All shipments will be considered lost if they have not arrived after 20 business days. Orders lost due to incomplete address information provided by the customer are the responsibility of the customer and, unfortunately, not eligible for a refund.
We want to make sure our packages get to you as quickly and painlessly as possible. Packages returned to us because of an incorrect or incomplete address may be assessed a 20% surcharge.
We guarantee that your package will be delivered to the address you provided to us. If your package is lost by the carrier, we'll replace it free of charge!
Every package we send has a delivery confirmation number. This is our proof of delivery. If your package is lost, and the carrier cannot give us confirmation of delivery, we will send you a replacement of your order at no cost to you. (If the carrier has proof of delivery, yet you did not receive your package, you will need to file a claim directly with the carrier using the delivery confirmation number we will provide for you.) This guarantee does not cover replacement of items damaged by incorrect handling or carelessness. All replacement orders will be mailed via USPS First-Class Mail.
- Please allow enough time for the carrier to deliver your package. In the case of the USPS, it can take up to 20 business days to deliver your package. Please wait the required amount of time before notifying us of an undelivered package.
- Please notify us by email if your package has not arrived or if you received damaged merchandise.
- If the carrier can provide confirmation that the package was delivered, we will be unable to send a replacement. Please make sure to check with neighbors, the front office, other family members, or those in your apartment complex who might have gotten the package by mistake.
If you should have any questions about our Shipping Policy, please feel free to get in touch with our Customer Happiness team here. We're always happy to help!
